This is a review of the painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, where God is creating Eve out of Adam's rib. 


Most people look at the figure, and ignore the ground.  An artist like Michelangelo is always aware of the ground.  In this example, he has created a holy Phallus delineated by the torso and arms of Eve, and the rocks just below her arms.  It is divided into two sections.  The upper section is the Sky, and the lower section is the Water.  A loose strand of her hair completes the illusion.

This virtual Phallus is pointed directly into Eve's womb.

Perhaps Michelangelo was laughing in Pope Julius II's face.  Perhaps it is just his usual shenanigans, like his painting of Eve's temptation.
